wants more. now, chuck schumer is saying, i'll play this in the next segment that he wants tax reform, but tax reform means another increase of revenue, in other words, another increase in taxes. is this negotiatable? will house republicans hold the line? and how do you stop this president? i mean, can you shut down the government? are you willing to shut down the government if the president won't deal with entitlement reform where all the spending is? >> look, you have to deal with entitlement reform if you want to save medicare, that's where the president has been so wrong. we've passed one of the toughest budgets anybody has looked at saving medicare and we grow the economy 13 million people are out of work, we put them back. this is a very conservative congress, and we've stand on ours, and this fight will put us on stronger ground and more importantly shall the american people are going to be with you from the statement if you can't pass the budget you shouldn't be paid and how could you move forward giving anybody a debt limit increase if they can't tell how to spend it. >> sean
republicans led by john mccain. four led by john schumer who have come up with a come comprehensive immigration plan bi-partisan they are going to announce today which includes a path to citizenship as well as tougher enforcement at the border all contained in one bill. president obama will talk about it in las vegas tomorrow. >> that's huge story. but perhaps a bigger story sara palin dumped by fox news. she was soaking it up and saying nothing. finally, they dumped her but they still have karl rove and dennis cue sin itch. kus. nich. all of that coming up here on current tv. floorboard >> the troops love me. (vo) tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >> you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. just be grateful current tv does not come in smellivision. the sweatshirt is nice and all but i could use a golden lasso. (vo) only on current tv. i want the people who watch our show, to be able to come away armed with the facts, and the arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the
services say he won't be able to vote for him, but i think when you have chuck schumer, has kind of cleared the way for a lot of -- >> kirsten gillibrand leaning on it. >> he has been able to neutralize the jewish and israel problems that he has had with chuck schumer. i'm not sure he is going to be able to quiet all the republicans that are nervous about him, but, again, this is the president's choice. he is a republican. i think it will be tough for republicans to oppose him in block. >> barring some unusual circumstance that we don't know about coming up at the hearing, jonathan, presidents do get the cabinets that they want most often, but we've also seen that the republican opposition has really struck by watching the republican questioning of both hillary clinton and john kerry. hillary clinton questioned about benghazi, clearly a setback, and a major crisis revealing that the state department was not prepared for the kind of security and threat warnings that they should have been on top of, but the questioning of hillary clinton by senator johnson and some of the others was, let's ju
and tragedies. so that's different. what isn't different is that as we heard senator schumer and others acknowledge, a very hard road to go to get actual legislation passed here. now i think more likely that we would see something like universal background checks or this gun trafficking measure that's going to be introduced by senator gillibrand and others, senator kirk in the next few days. hard to see senator feinstein's bill actually being enacted. and yet it is clearly true there is something different going on this time than in past incidents. >> yeah, to your point. dianne feinstein said it will be hard but you see people like joe manchin willing to work on some things. he's a touchstone for a lot of democrats who look to people who are supporters of gun rights. i'm wontderring when you have the people who do push back on certain parts of it and that does include joe manchin and people like harry reid who basically has said he's not superulatively supportive of the president's plan. let's put it that way. i'm wondering, ryan is this because they live in those gun states, they fear
of the national anthem. her performance also seemed to catch the eye of senator chuck schumer. he was also behind the dazzling diva stealing a bit of the spotlight with that face. president clinton didn't want to miss the chance of seeing kelly clarkson up close and personal. he was caught sneaking a peek out of line. >>> obama's brother-in-law, craig robinson, was hamming it up over the president's shoulder. >>> eric cantor was caught making some sour faces during richard blanco's reading of the inaugural poem. doesn't look like he's a fan. >>> and from a frequent critic of president obama, conservative tact activist grover norquist feeted, "it is official. the best after-party tonight was chicago mayor rahm's." >>> for a look at the national forecast, we turn to dylan dreyer. >> good morning. it ended up being nice. >> dry and pretty warm. >> and temperatures were above average yesterday, but today the 20s will start working into the nation's capital. also 20s to take told across the northeast and even single dimgis through the northern plains. that cold air crossing over the great lakes which
on the fact it's 1,363 days since the democrats passed a budget. yesterday chuck schumer hinted that may change. let's listen. >> in our budget that we will pass, we lift tax reform, which went many of my republican colleagues' way, but it's going to include revenues. it's a great opportunity to get us some more revenues to help in part deal with sequestration. >> so where does this fit in? >> i think where republicans have a legitimate critique of democrats is that democrats have not presented a budget in four years. if you look back at history is an irresponsible way of budgeting. it's how we would have budgeted in washington or college. maybe they won't present one, maybe they will. they have to at some point. the continuing operations of the government that bill expires in march. we have to do something. the big one is the debt limit. do we lift the debt limit so you can continue to borrow more money to fund the government? republicans are coming to the conclusion that they'll figure out a way to do that. even that's not a given. republicans have had it with spending. they feel they'
. hagel erode looks like it's full of potholes ahead. >> it is, but it's all theater. with senator schumer of new york coming up for him will, enough senators have come out for him and clear he will get confirmed. so this is a fight the president picked with congress and won. that gives him more political capital, a great place for the president to be. but this hearing is going to have a lot more fireworks. republicans, democrats, everybody will pile on to senator hagel. but don't be fooled by the rhetoric. he'll pass. and one are more cabinet note. today is secretary geithner's last gay at the treasury. he has a long history with the building. he came in not just as treasury secretary, but he also worked there as a civil servant. >> let's get to what happened yesterday. senator feinstein's gun reform proposal. she knows it will never get through the house. what was she trying to accomplish? >> she is trying to build support for this issue. she's talking at a time when opinion polls make it clear that the public is for it. and a big voice, bill that we'll hear on this in coming days is gab
cliff despite the fact the fiscal cliff deal past and here we are now. chuck schumer already speaking out on the democratic side saying we will look at this, but we're also going to want to increase taxes. that was a flat-ou flat out linm senator schumer. will the senate rain on this parade? >> the senate reins in every parade everyday. that is not an earth flash there. i voted against raising taxes on any americans for the majority in the house and the senate and the president said some taxes have to go up. i disagreed with that. i didn't think the leadership was going to be in any mood, i know the rank-and-file will not be in any mood to raise taxes. doesn't mean we can't raise some revenue with sales and asset sales and things like that, but in terms of tax increases, i think every house republican would vote no on a pure tax increase. cheryl: spending reductions. i know you and many of your republican colleagues in the house have said and how it programs have to be addressed, but if you recall, said absolutely there would be no discussion of cutting any type of entitlement program
, and senator chuck schumer said they were pretty confident, that congress is going to approve the president's gun plan, but a firearms expert says that the plan is not the solution when keeping our children safe from ruthless killers. killers. he will he' explain why when are you flo? yes. is this the thing you gave my husband? well, yeah, yes. the "name your price" tool. you tell us the price you want to pay, and we give you a range of options to choose from. careful, though -- that kind of power can go to your head. that explains a lot. yo, buddy! i got this. gimme one, gimme one, gimme one! the power of the "name your price" tool. only from progressive. living with moderate to semeans living with pain.is it could also mean living with joint damage. humira, adalimumab, can help treat more than just the pain. for many adults, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop further joint damage. humira can lower your abilitto fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blo
. >> just to take it in, i was watching him as he watched, you know, chuck schumer, the opening comments. and it was the side of the president we didn't see in the first term, much more emotional after newtown, even thanking the field staffers. he has just a real sense, are -- not only what it means to him but for those who reelected him. it sends a message, one term could have been a fluke, but two terms sends a message of who he is now. >> the first interest i had, is there a human being there? and you can tell right away, they approach you on the floor of the senate. there is a complete vacancy in there, they are nothing but mechanical politicians, they wanted to be that their entire lives. and then there are the guys, the women who are there who want to be a real person. and that is the kind of person who would know where he was at that moment, to stop and make a turn. >> that is right, it reminds me of somebody who was down there, a woman who was there, 86 years old, she said she attended the first inaugural for fdr, i asked her what made her want to come down there for the inaugura
. everyone was eating and listening to a speech by senator chuck schumer when this happened. >> i think we really deserve a round of applause to our chef -- did you see that dismissive head shake there? catch that eye roll there. looks like she didn't like the conversation much going on or coming at her from boehner. up next, republicans have figured out they can't win presidential elections fair and square so now they want to change the rules. they want to cheat a little. you're watching "hardball," the place for politics. ♪ aww man.

to be useful an i have a lot of respect for carl levin, lamar alexander, chuck schumer, john mccain, ben cardin, the people that worked on this along with the leaders so i wouldn't judge it to be a failed -- failure just yet. >> i want to pull out the lens a little bit. we have an asymmetrical problem and we have the senate and congress, as well. do you agree with that conception? >> no. i absolutely agree with that conception. and it's in the epilogue of my book. i think norm and tom are right that it's the movement of the republicans to the right, and frankly, i believe that the obstruction strategy followed by the senate republicans for the last four years and particularly during the national economic crisis was absolutely the wrong thing for the country. fortunately, i think it turned out to be the wrong thing for them, as well. >> ira, while we're dishing out advice for republicans, let's look at senate democrats for a second. they haven't passed a budget since 2009 and "the washington post" has a piece out right now sort of trying to address why that may be. an answer they give is a budge
the john kerry hearings. in the end, the numbers. once senator schumer democrat said he answered all my questions, we know there have been meetings with others who have been critical and others with john mccain. he has done a lot of leg work and going into it, i don't think that mean that is it will be smooth sailing. they will be very tough questions and in the end they thought that he would be confirmed. >> how many republicans will vote to confirm him. we will find out. who is coming up on state of the union? >> dianne feinstein will talk about a number of things including the automatic weapons ban, but we will have on as well as former general hayden. we wanted to talk about women in the military. they are uniquely qualified to look at this and say how does it change things? we will have that and a group of republicans that come on from the outside. the virginia governor to tell us how they think they can fix the party from the outside. >> 9:00 a.m. eastern. we will be watching. thanks. >> today an appeals court handed the president a stinging defeat for the panel unanimously rule a

like durbin and schumer, liberal democrats going along with something with john mccain and lindsey graham, that's a pretty good sign that this will pass easily in the senate. i think one of the most intriguing stories is the fight for credit. i think there are going to be a lot of people headed by marco rubio who will want to get a lot of this credit. lori: on the political side but it also begs the question, right, greg, what happens to the millions of illegal immigrants already living and working in this country? will it put pressure on available jobs and other services like hospital care, et cetera, what do you think?. >> i don't think so. i would prefer to take a positive spin on this entire story. i think if you look at a country like japan which is a demographic train wreck with a huge deficit, much bigger than ours, we're adding lots of people who will pay social security taxes. who will pay other taxes. you're adding to our population i think a workforce that will actually help our fiscal issues far more than a country say like japan. lori: good comparison. help our fiscal
be against congress going without pay at this point. chuck schumer said a budget is in the works, but it disease include a plan to raise taxes. there were two other unscripted memorable moments from yesterday's inauguration. first malia obama making funny faces. and al roker declaring victory, dropping the mic and then getting joe biden to jog over and shake his hand. there is a lot of speculation that the veep is gearing up for 2016, by accidentally announcing he was president instead of vice president. iowa new hampshire, of course a early voting state. we'll be back with more show charlie pierce, right-wing world right after the break. ♪ arguments to feel confident in their positions. i want them to have the data and i want them to have the passion. but it's also about telling them, you're put on this planet for something more. i want this show to have an impact beyond just informing. an impact that gets people to take action themselves. as a human being, that's really important. this is not just a spectator sport.

without pay. i'm not sure this is a threat the american people would mind so much. senator chuck schumer has said the senate is working on a budget but the republicans won't like it because it includes tax increases. they will talk about a short term solution. it is a change from before. beyond that, it remains to be seen what common ground, if any we can find between the two sides. house speaker boehner wants to balance the budge net ten years but doing that would take massive spending cuts that democrats won't go for. we're back after the break. coming on to me all the time now.
